Independent music has seen a flood of new albums as it becomes easier to create and distribute music. Technology has cut down the barriers of independent music but the fans won’t benefit unless they know what’s worth their time. Contrastream is not limited in the way traditional review magazines/sites by allowing more people to contribute, no limits on the amount of albums, and hearing it straight for the indie fans.
Everyone now has a voice in filtering the good from the bad and by leveraging the power of crowds we can improve the standard of music we listen too. We believe the success of albums should be measured by the quality of the music not marketing budgets.
The best way to find music is from word of mouth and this is a way to hear those collective recommendations.
